4-H has taught me so much. I have been in 4-H since the 5th grade and I have to say it has been the most wonderful experience. I started out kind of shy not knowing that many people, and the person who sat in the back with my parent. Now I am leading in many ways. I was secretary for my club last year, and I am the reporter this year. I have gone to space camp twice, once as a camper and once as a counselor, both of which were a blast. Being a counselor opened up my eyes to being an even better leader. I have also been to WI 4-H Youth Conference where I met many people and learned new lifelong skills. Now I am a freshman in high school continually trying to become a better leader, and without 4-H and their programs, and experiences I don't think I would be where I am today. 4-H has helped me strive and learn many new things, and hopefully will teach me even more as I continue on my path towards my future.
